In our early days, we funded and helped to create Mapquest, a pioneering Internet business that became synonymous with online directions. In our business services sector, we invested in companies including Cable Services Group (payment and billing services for cable companies) and Pegasus (online reservations for the travel industry) and guided them through highly successful IPOs.

The firm expanded its core focus on Information and Business Services to include Cybersecurity, Healthcare IT, Internet and Marketing Services and Cloud and Enterprise IT.

From our first fund in 1993 to our seventh fund in 2010, we raised over $1.9 billion and invested in more than 180 companies.

For over 30 years, we have helped entrepreneurs and CEOs transform their business into market leaders by providing strategic and management advice, sector and operational expertise, management candidates, introductions to customers and strategic partners, and liquidity guidance.  We provide business management and operation consulting services as well as venture capital and growth capital funding, management, and analysis services, to companies ranging from start-up and emerging companies to late stage venture and growth investments. 

In 2015, the partners of Trident Capital formed two new firms, Forgepoint Capital, a venture capital firm focused exclusively on cybersecurity, and Sunstone Partners, a growth equity firm focused on technology enabled business services.  The Trident Capital team continues to work together to manage the Trident Capital portfolio.
